Coloring influences the development of your child's fine motor skills Kids learn to properly hold a crayon and use it in such a way as not to go outside the line and adjust the pressure level. This is also good practice before learning how to write. Frequent coloring makes it easier to write their first letters.

Playing with coloring pages also teaches the youngest how to concentrate. Small children have a limited ability of focusing their attention on one thing, so their first attempts to playing with coloring books can be difficult for them. However, the more often they color and the more they get absorbed by it, the easier it will be for them to spend more and more time on it.
